Man, 47, trapped under tractor, dies

GENEVA TOWNSHIP (AP) – The Kane County sheriff says an Elgin man has died after he was trapped under a tractor.

Kane County Sheriff’s officials say 47-year-old Joel Bork of Elgin died Sunday afternoon. Deputies responded to an address in Geneva Township, where they found Bork. He had been operating a lightweight front-loader tractor on his family farm.

Officials don’t know how it happened, but they say the tractor flipped over and trapped Bork underneath. Officials say Bork was alone at the time, and relatives called 911 when they couldn’t locate him.

Bork was pronounced dead at the scene.
